HTML Paragraphs

The HTML <p> element defines a paragraph:

<p>This is a paragraph.</p>
<p>This is another paragraph.</p>


You cannot be sure how HTML will be displayed.

Large or small screens, and resized windows will create different results.

With HTML, you cannot change the output by adding extra spaces or extra lines in your HTML code.

The browser will remove any extra spaces and extra lines when the page is displayed:

    <p>This is          another     paragraph, extra spaces   will be   removed  by browsers</p>
